    Now for the juicy parts... here's the primary spec-list:
    • 8-inch Full HD IPS LCD display
    • Built-in stylus that works with Nvidia’s new DirectStylus 2 tech

    • Wi-Fi only version with 16GB of built-in storage, and an LTE-equipped version with 32GB of storage
    • Both feature an expansion card slot for up to 128GB of additional storage space
